How do you explain to a six year old why people come and go out of his life?
I have been struggling with this question for awhile...and I still have no good answer. When his dad & I divorced...it was tramatic enough. To add insult to injury, we lost friends that meant a lot in the divorce . How do you explain to a 5 year old that his best friend can't be his friend anymore do to mommy politics?! It was hard and I finally told him he moved and I didn't have his new phone number.
That was hard enough...how do you explain to him that a grandparent or cousins still love him but we are likely never to see them again. I would love ideas...I placate as much as I can...but it invariably comes up again...where is ____________?
